News Release


Katherine Joseph Joins Trauma Survivors Network as New National TSN Coordinator 


Oct. 3, 2019 (Falls Church, Va.) – The American Trauma Society (ATS) is pleased to announce Katherine Joseph as the new national TSN coordinator for the Trauma Survivors Network (TSN). In this position, Katherine will support TSN coordinators as they implement and strengthen the TSN at their local trauma centers. She will provide ongoing training and education, develop and promote best practices, and provide technical assistance. Katherine also will be responsible for the TSN’s online presence, supporting social media outlets and outreach, along with website and database management.


Katherine’s background includes serving as the TSN program coordinator at the University of Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. In that role, Katherine promoted the continued development and implementation of the Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) at one of our nation’s largest trauma centers. More recently, Katherine served at the University of Maryland’s Department of Orthopaedics as a clinical research specialist.


“We are pleased to have Katherine join our team at this important time in the TSN’s growth,” said ATS President Christopher Michetti, MD. “In her prior role as the TSN coordinator at R. Adams Shock Trauma, Katherine developed a key understanding of how TSN sites operate including the needs of trauma patients, their families and our centers coordinators. We are excited for her to bring her expertise and commitment to the National Office and assist coordinators in helping them reach the same success.”


Katherine began her role on Oct. 2, taking over for Eileen Flores who served in the role for more than 3 years. Eileen will continue to support the TSN program in a staff advisory role. The ATS asks you to join in thanking Eileen for her years of dedicated service to the TSN. Through her tireless efforts, the TSN has grown exponentially during her tenure, in size and scope, serving thousands of patients and families throughout the United States. 


The Trauma Survivors Network, a program of the American Trauma Society, is a community of trauma patients and families who are looking to connect with one another and rebuild their lives after a serious injury. As the leading organization advocating for the injured patient, the ATS partners with over 100 hospitals around the country to provide programs and resources aimed at assisting trauma patients and their families rebuild their lives after serious injury.
